Program Description

On the heels of AIGA NY's first Citizen Designer Now event in December, and the Citizen Designer Pledge, we’re hosting a second town hall. The goal: To help further spread inspirations and lessons for how each of us can engage with civic causes.

We’ll do that in two ways. First, we’ll host a panel discussion that showcases inspiring figures from the world of civic startups. Then, we’ll ask audience members to share what they’ve learned about how to get engaged—and what causes they’ve found that need our community’s support.

Join us for inspiration, knowledge sharing, and community building!
